STM32 Development Kit

The STM32 Primer is a self-contained hand-held evaluation and development tool designed to provide a fun and easy introduction to the features of the STM32 Flash microcontroller family (based on the ARM Cortex-M3 core). The compact circular unit is matched with sample applications including two games, and provides access to a dedicated on-line community for sharing resources and experiences. Control and navigation through the built-in graphical user interface - featuring a 128x128 pixel LCD colour monitor - uses MEMS-based position sensing to monitor the forward, backward, left or right tilt of the Primer.

These controls enable the user to play the Maze and Breakout games, included among the firmware designed to demonstrate the features and resources of the STM32. Users can also change settings and run test software through the menu system. The unit is powered by a battery, which is recharged through one of the two USB connectors: one to connect to a PC for application development, the other to enable the embedded application to communicate with an external USB host. The device-programming and -debugging capability is provided by Raisonance's RIDE7 integrated development environment for up to 32kbytes of code, which includes an unlimited GNU C/C++ compiler.
